Environmental Chemistry Book Re-Released

This is a re-release of a book that is important for anyone who is involved in the environmental forensics industry. It provides essential information about the behavior of chemicals in the environment as presented by one of North America's premier soil chemists.

In 1988 Dr. James Dragun's first book, "The Soil Chemistry of Hazardous Materials" was released. In 1998, the second edition to this book was released. Now a re-release of the second edition is available.

This is a "hardcore" scientific book that is well referenced and provides essential scientific information for anyone that needs to understand how chemicals behave in the environment. The fate of various chemicals in the environment is the focus of much of today's environmental and insurance coverage litigation. In this book, Dr. Dragun dispels over 100 misconceptions about the behavior of chemicals in soil. These misconceptions lead to improper conclusions that can result in wrong solutions.

Dr. Dragun has provided scientific support and insight on projects across North America, as well as overseas. He received his Ph.D. in agronomy from Penn State University, has authored/co-authored more than ten technical books, and is an adjunct professor at the University of Massachusetts. He is the president of The Dragun Corporation, an environmental consulting firm with offices in Farmington Hills, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
